I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

  1. These weekly developer's meeting notes are a constant reminder of something far more exciting and significant than anything Adobe has managed in years. The Blender developers' output and dedication is extraordinary ;-)
